Daily, I read in the newspapers, about the new metro line from CP to DU running full capacity. It is great news. To sustain the high standard that metro intends to set for Delhi, Delhi Metro must be a profitable venture.
I read about trains being delayed because of overcrowded compartments. I think very soon we might need “Professional Pushers” like those at JR stations in Tokyo. These JR employees, push people when the pneumatic doors are closing, so that they can be packed inside the compartment. Once the doors get closed, there is a lot of space automatically created for everybody to stand comfortably. The Yamanote line, which circles Tokyo like our ring road is the most famous for these professional pushers.
I hope to get a ride of the underground section sometime soon.
